Additional comments


Hi @lambda, thanks a lot for posting this and helping us improve Dynalist!

My opinion is that this is expected on desktop, to be able to show more documents. You can easily horizontally scroll the slide bar. Also, you can freely resize the slide bar.

Here are some other examples of this behavior, in other editors:

Sublime Text:

IntelliJ IDE:

Wrapping the file names would look them look weirder, in my humble opinion.

On the mobile app, since (1) you cannot resize the slide bar, and (2) horizontal scrolling is harder with the menu icon at the right, we made it so the document names wrap.

I hope that makes sense!


It makes sense.
But what about showing full title when hovering over it just like most file manager will do?


Great idea! :thumbsup:

I’ve tracked this task and hopefully we can get to it at some point! Thanks again for letting us know.
